Instructors deliver residential, 1 to 5 day environmental education programs to 4th – 8th grade students. We focus on social and emotional learning, science and engineering skills, and adventure education. The hands-on lessons focus on building critical thinking skills and exploring the connections between the natural and human-made world. Some of our favorite classes include wilderness survival, wood carving, aquatic biology, forestry, and outdoor cooking! Instructors also facilitate team building (initiatives and low ropes) to develop students’ leadership and problem-solving skills. Instructors are responsible for educating a group of 10-12 students throughout the program, including facilitating day and night lessons, leading large group activities and hosting meals. We are committed to providing the highest quality educational experience to our schools and are looking for enthusiastic, dedicated educators to join our team!
